Bears WR Issues a ‘Blessing in Disguise’ For Cutler


Without Jeffery and Royal for extended stretches, Cutler has won games with Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani and Cameron Meredith taking as many as 75 percent of Bears offensive snaps in those games. “It probably was a blessing in disguise,” quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains said. Cutler is completing 60.9 percent of his passes this season, inadequate by NFL standards. But that is a completion rate better than any of Cutler’s Bears seasons from 2009-2012. And that is without Jeffery, Marshall and Matt Forte on track to each average 85 passes as they did the past two seasons. Even more importantly, Cutler’s interception percentage stands at 2.3 percent. Only in his injury shortened 2011 season (2.2 percent) saw Cutler as protective of the football.
